Boise, ID
Coeur d'Alene and Sandpoint, ID
Salt Lake City----for the backdrop, not really the city itself.

And for a ski resort town, Sun Valley, Idaho, elegant, rugged, and breathtaking.

The mountains around Asheville seem really awesome for the Appalachians. It looks more western style then small rugged Eastern Appalachians. I am going to the Great Smokies as soon Spring breaks.

And the Alleghenies.
Pittsburgh might be as you stated, but the others are definitely surrounded by mountains. The photos may not depict them very well, but all you need to do is look at where these cities are located. Knoxville, Roanoke, Spokane - all located in the mountains...I think that makes them mountainous cities doesn't it?

Each one is located in a very mountainous area that includes all of the beautiful scenery one might imagine.
